Carbs in a Pumpkin Spice Latte
It all started with the Starbucks pumpkin spice latte. But, as amazing as it is, the cow’s milk and sugar really add up. Carb-wise, I mean: 52 grams in a medium, 50 of which are sugar. Here’s how we’ll modify this low carb pumpkin spice latte to get those numbers down:
- Low Carb Milk – unsweetened almond milk is most subtle, and what I prefer here. Coconut milk or oat milk are also great choices.
- Pumpkin Puree
- Swerve or Lakanto – You can use any of the keto sweeteners you prefer here. Adjust the amount you add based on how sweet you like your drinks. HINT: If you don’t like the taste of coffee, you’ll want to add more sweetener!
- Vanilla Extract
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – Or mix up a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice for your very own keto pumpkin spice mix. Grab the exact ratios here.
- Coffee – 1 shot of espresso works best here (but since most of us don’t have an espresso machine…) hot/strong coffee works great!
- Whipped Cream – 1 tablespoon of most brands has 0g carbs. BUT, it does contain added sugar — you can also make your own with low carb sweetener (it’s always better!).
How to Make a Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte:
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, and erythritol.
- Once warmed to your liking, remove from heat and add the vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and coffee.
- Top with whipped cream, a dash of pumpkin pie spice, and enjoy.
Make-Ahead Tips 💪
Combine your milk, sweetener, pumpkin, and spices together in a blender and store in the fridge. Next time you’re craving a sugar free pumpkin spice latte, reheat a little (in the microwave or over the stove) and pour a shot of espresso through the middle. Enjoy!
Have your low carb pumpkin spice latte your way with these potential swaps:
- Make this with decaf coffee.
- Or cold brew. For best results, you’ll want to blend the milk to fully incorporate it with the pumpkin, spices, and sweetener. Then pour your cold brew over ice and the milk over that.
- Make pumpkin keto ice cubes for cold coffee by combing all ingredients (except the coffee) in a blender, pouring them into ice cubes, and freezing for your next cold coffee.
